AMERICANS AMONG US

From Michael Yon:

Michael reminds us that "many American soldiers are not actually citizens of the United States, but the 'foreigners' in the US Army I got to know in Mosul didn't fight with any less commitment than those born in the US."

For instance Walt Gaya, from Argentina. Fighting for his new country, even without having yet become a citizen yet. Wounded in an attack - his biggest concern was missing his swearing-in ceremony that would have been his official welcome as a new American. How many natural born citizens lack that kind of commitment? Read about Walt in Michael's latest dispatch. Then say a prayer of thanks that there are people like him in the world, and welcome him as your fellow citizen.
